CMBI 6602 - Biochemistry of Bioenergetics

Prerequisite: undergraduate organic chemistry. This course is strongly recommended for students lacking undergraduate biochemistry. Examination of the major anabolic and catabolic pathways and their regulation. Catabolic pathways for the oxidation of hexoses, lipids, and amino acids are considered. These processes lead to the formation of chemiosmotic gradient capable of driving ATP synthesis. Discussion of the anabolic pathways starts with the generation of similar chemiosmotic gradient by light absorption or other energy-releasing pathways leading to production of carbohydrates, lipids, amino acids, and nucleotides. 3 credits.
